the director of national intelligence james clapper on election night, according to a senior u.s. intelligence official. the white house says it was notified the day after the election, and the president the following day. that doesn't make sense to house homeland security chairman peter king. >> this seems to have been going on for several months yet now it appears they're saying that the fbi didn't realize until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up. >> "the new york times" reports the fbi actually started its investigation late this summer. the house and senate intelligence committees were also caught by surprise. >> are you going to investigate why the fbi didn't notify you before? >> yes, absolutely. i mean, this is something that could have had an effect on national security. i think we should have been told. >> the fbi was investigating harassing e-mails from petraeus' biographer. the trail led to paula broadwell, who co-wrote "all in," a biography of petraeus. broadwell described her extraordinary access to the general earlier this year on cnn. >> at s
us now is mark mehlman from the group and coming at you, americans, have we become a nation of takers? >> actually, not. this is still a very great country where we produce a lot of things, the reality is we do have more people on medicaid than we have in the past, who are those people? well, the truth is two third of them are seniors in nursing homes and by and large people passed by any construction their making years. and a third of that money goes to children, who are, who are poor, don't have other kinds of health insurance, so, those are folks not yet in their making years. so, i don't think that really says much of anything, except it does say we have a crisis about long-term care in in country, that we've got to solve and deal with. and food stamps. charles: mark, i've got to jump in here a minute. listen, either you're whistling by the the graveyard or you're not being honest here, these are a gigantic enormous numbers and this is not the america that almost anybody watching the show grew up with. certainly you have to be alarmed by the trend? >> you do have to be alarmed by
bloodshed, bullets, we did it without people with boots and badges dragging us through the streets. of course, now, the hand wringing begins as republican whine about mitt romney's campaign or mitt romney himself. look, romney won the primary and he earned the right to carry our banner. in his campaign they gave it all they had and i don't agree with those who said that the obama message of bigger government and more taxes won. it was not an election about a message. it was an election about the machinery to get out the votes for president obama. and it was a masterful, methodical effort. now, as i listened to a lot of fellow television and radio talk show hosts or even read the opinion columns of those who excoriated romney, a couple of things occurred to me. if you weren't critical of mitt romney and his campaign the day before the election, then don't be a phony and be critical the day after. also, i noted that the loudest critics were the people who have never once put their own names on a ballot for anything. and since some seem to have a perfect insight into how to run a camp
and the petraeus family confirming to us, a second woman was involved in the fbi investigation of his e-mails and she was in fact, a close friend named jill kelly. and that's her in this photo second from the right, standing right next to general petraeus, his wife, polly. we're told petraeus and kelly were not having an affair, but she did receive e-mails from paula broadwell the woman whom petraeus was involved. how this relates to our nation's safety is key for you to know and understand. let's bring in national security correspondent jennifer griffin joining us on the phone from d.c. and jennifer start there, national security and why it's important. >> well, it's very important and every time a story comes out these days from about this story, the benghazi story, we keep having to-- we keep finding out it's not the whole truth. what we've learned tonight, i've spoken to sources that are close to both the petraeus family and jill kelly's family and what i can confirm, jill kelly never worked for the state department, or for the joint special operations command or for com. she's a fa
republicans and democrats. >>shepard: thank you from washington. with us now is the senior judicial analyst, who now also is the author of a new book and how two american presidents destroyed constitutional freedom. i don't really understand how this went from an affair through an e-mail to an investigation on this level. >>judge napolitano: i don't understand that, either, shep, and in order for the f.b.i. to be reading the e-mails of the chief spy of the united states, the director of the c.i.a., they would either need a search warrant from a federal judge and would have to demonstrate to him that yep general himself was possessing or was involved with, or possessing evidence of a crime or engaged in control activity or they would have to write their own search warrant under the patriot act and satisfy themselves the general was involved in terrorist activity. both of these is absurd. neither of them could form the basis for this. the only other way to watch the e-mail is to hack into a c.i.a. computer which would then be a crime so in any those three situations, the f.b.i. has a lot of e
